At the Lennon Wall

I recently just came back from my first ever visit to Prague, a city that I absolutely fell in love with. There is something so charming and breathtaking about the majestic architecture and rich history that the city holds. Of the beautiful things that we saw, I happened to fall in love with the famous Lennon Wall – which weirdly enough does not really have much to do with John Lennon himself.

The Lennon Wall is a symbol of freedom that the youths of the Czech Republic admired as a rebellion against the communist regime they were forced to live under in the 80s.

Other than the fact that the wall is aesthetically beautiful filled with graffiti and quotes taken from famous Beatles songs, I was most attracted and intrigued by what the wall symbolises – a fight against oppression and the desire to have freedom of speech – symbolic of peace, freedom and love.
